National Dementia Action Plan
The National Dementia Action Plan is a joint initiative between the Australian Government and state and territory governments. It is a 10 -year plan to put people living with dementia, their families, and carers at the centre of all action on dementia.
The National Dementia Action Plan has a vision where Australians understand dementia – people living with dementia and their carers have the best quality of life possible and no one walks the dementia journey alone.

A consultation paper has been developed following feedback from stakeholders including people with lived experience, aged care peak bodies (including Dementia Australia and Carers Australia), clinicians, specialists, academics, researchers and data analysts.
